Oil leak in the valley

Drip under the truck, this time engine oil.

Look in the valley, wet with oil right up under the HPOP. By feel the bottom of the HPOP is wet with oil.

So am I am for one HPOP seals kit, and a remove, replace seals, refit?

Does not sound good
A mate of mine had same problem
Found a crack in the HPOP
Hope it is just the seal

Cheers,

U should know the deal buy now Simon. Clean her right up, get the flexible mirror and find out exactly where. Buy the sounds of it , should be easy to spot. Guzzles site sells the rebuild kit. Might be the un servicable plug.

Yes, I know. I was wondering if there is any seals that are replaceable around there that I could try replacing before I go to the trouble of pulling out the HPOP.
Guzzle should have the answer.

Just the seals on the HPOP hoses could be done. But if it aint the issue whats the point bro. Its about time you got in there and dirty . With the age of your truck I would put one of Joey's modded HPOP in and be done with it. Your injectors will luv u for it and if you upgrade the sticks at a latter date you are half way there.

Is that the Terminator 500 HPOP you're talking about:

Riffraff Diesel: Terminator T500 HPOP

Anyone got an old HPOP they want to lend me so that I can pre-ship?

Once the new one comes and I replace the one on my truck I can ship my used one to return the loaner.

Isn't this classic, 2 weeks after the Aussie drops 12% against the green back I'm off the spend nearly a grand...

Nop. U dont have to go that far with the HPOP. He does a modded HPOP which is keeping up with my 250cc. Its only about 300 bones. And I cant help with a spare. Someone got on that boat b4 u. Maybe Clay can help or just pay the core.

May as well also cough up the bucks for the T500 from Clay and keep my options open.

E.G. If a BT50 ever passes me when I'm towing I will be upgrading my injectors very soon afterwards cause I ain't going to let that happen twice!
